COMMISSIONER’S STATEMENT

Commissioner of Baseball Robert D. Manfred, Jr. issued the following statement regarding the passing of Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton at the age of 75:

“Don Sutton was one of our game’s most consistent winning pitchers across his decorated 23-year career.  The longtime Dodger was a four-time All-Star, a top-five finisher in Cy Young Award balloting for five consecutive years, a World Series participant four times in a nine-season span, and a model of durability on the mound.  He also helped bring baseball into the homes of millions of fans as a Braves broadcaster.

“Throughout his career, Don represented our game with great class, and many will remember his excitement during his trips to Cooperstown.  On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest condolences to Don’s family, friends and the many fans he earned throughout a memorable life in our National Pastime.”
